    Well what “sounds” best with the last name? And what are the initials? consider these factors also. Personally I like Felicity better, it’s more feminine.

    I voted for Dominique.

    The only one I’ve ever heard of though is Dominique Swain from Face/Off and she was really cool. So I was biased towards it. Felicity is pretty, but harder with nicknames (I’ve only heard “Flick” before)

    my first choice was dominique but i know a few dominiques and everyone calls them Dom, which im not so crazy about. I think it’s a beautiful name though. So I picked Felicity since there aren’t many nicknames for that

    In French, Dominique is a common girl name… I second the PP who said to look at the sound of it with your last name as well as the initials… And if both pass the test, keep both names in mind and you’ll know when you see her.

    DH and I had two names, and I thought he liked one more than the other but as soon as our DS came out, he was like, “well this is Little E”, which was the name I thought he cared less about.

    I voted for Felicity.  But I don’t see any harm in waiting until you see your little one to decide.  We had 4 to choose from for my daughter and the name I liked the most going in?  Totally didn’t fit her.

    The first thing I thought of when I heard “Dominique” was diamonique. Those fake diamonds that QVC sells. It also might be hard to spell. I know many male Dominics and like the nickname “Dom,” but Dominique doesn’t have a nice feminine nickname.

    LOVE Felicity!!

    I like Felicity. It’s not as common as Dominique, but still a pretty name.

    When I took French in high school, the name I chose for myself was Dominique.  So, of course I choose that one.  🙂

    @PinkMagnolia:  They could always do “Nikki” (like what is used for Nichole) for a nickname.
